First steps into the world of music are easy with the Pound and Tap Bench. The colorful balls can be pounded through the holes with a hammer, playing out a little jingle as they bounce down the xylophone bars. When your little maestro feels like having more of a hand in music composition, the xylophone can be pulled out and little melodies can be played on its seven bars with the hammer. One of the hallmarks of Hape toys is their high-quality, durable construction, all showcased in the high-quality Birch, Maple, and child-safe finishings of the Pound and Tap Bench. For ages 12 months and up.
-Pound out some tunes with the xylophone, or let the balls do all the work. The xylophone can be removed so it can be played separately.
